Kongsberg will work alongside prime contractor J/V, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, to deliver and install all components within Q2 2008.
The contract includes the supply of software and hardware, such as the Kongsberg Norcontrol IT VTMIS5060 with radar, VHF, three Operator Stations, as well as a Port Management Information System (PMIS). A web based traffic display system incorporating web-based access to the PMIS will also be supplied.
VTS training is included as part of the agreement.
"Rijeka is a developing port and needs to make use of the latest technology in order to meet the demands of modernisation," says Terje Samuelsen, project manager, Kongsberg Norcontrol IT.
"The VTS and PMIS systems we are supplying will ensure improved day-to-day operations and safety, but will also assist in the long term growth strategy that the Port of Rijeka Authority has in place."
